Locating clusters here was rather difficult, due to the presence of the Milky Way.
It was not readily apparent if something was really a cluster or merely a rich
starfield. This was a large open cluster which just about filled the FOV at 32x
(about 1.5°). THere was a nice arc of brighter stars across the top of the FOV,
with a square of 4 stars at the center, superimposed over a scattering of fainter
stars. Going up to 48x resolved more of the fainter stars.
